Resort saw Mary Alice Haney, known for her relaxed California glamour, in a more Hollywood mode. Inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer as a fallen party girl in “Scarface,” she did fluid dresses with daringly high thigh slits, as in a flowy floral gown, and a skintight navy dress with hip embellishment. “You’ll get a leg but not cleavage. It’s all about body consciousness,” Haney said. There were also plenty of mix-and-match separates, imbued with a breezy formality, proposed for what Haney referred to as “night-to-day” wear; especially interesting was halter/one-sleeve hybrid top with metallic stripes.
On her customer, Haney says “she’s sexy and not afraid to make a statement; she doesn’t want to be fussy, but she does want to be relaxed.”
